Not in a definitive frame of mind today. Do I want to blog?
Make inroads in those pesky pesky projects lurking just beyond this blog in the pile of words yet unwritten?
Chuck it all in and feed a different part of my brain all together today?
The one thing I do not want to do today is marinate in the awful goings-on of the world. Just today.
There’s a constriction in ambivalence, the narrowing of roads when a decision is made. Wait long enough, and sometimes the decision is made for you.
Regardless, it’s Monday, and Monday it will do. Have a great one.
I’m taking a bit of a break today, but feel free to tell me about your week!
How did it go?
Ten word story time! Using the image above, write a ten word story. Exactly ten words.
Let’s get right to it.
Here’s mine, inspired by absolutely no real-life events:
The vortex encircled the Dictator, dragging him back to Hell.
So Twitter is glitchy today and the lack of it has me realizing how many “just five minuteses” of my attention are consumed by it.
Many, many five minuteses.
In some ways, it creates an urgency, the latest comments, the latest news, the latest speculation.
So, so much speculation.
And even though I know it’s fruitless, at least for the time-being, I’m still posting on Twitter.
It’s pretty out, no longer scorching, and maybe today will be the first in a long streak where it doesn’t suddenly turn dark and start pouring. But who’s to say.
Meanwhile, I’m venturing into Wednesday entirely Twitterless.
Well, not entirely.
I’ll probably even try tweeting this post anyway. Have a great Wednesday.
Yesterday was such a Monday I didn’t even post a picture with the blog. Now that’s Monday.
Today is not Monday, as it’s Tuesday, and as such I hope to at least manage some kind of image up there. Fingers crossed. (UPDATE: I did it! Photo accomplished.)
We’ve got fluffy clouds and summer temps and not enough coffee but that’s a daily issue. It would be nice if scientists got to inventing a caffeine with all of the benefits and none of the drawbacks.
I suspect Aunty Ida could handle that.
The great thing about a finished blog post is all the times I got distracted writing it get smoothed away. Unless I tell on myself as I did right then.
And distracted I was, by those self-same fluffy clouds and assorted other shiny things. I’m definitely feeling the lazy drone of summer, it’s nearly hypnotic.
But off I go to be productive in some form or another. Have a great Tuesday.
It sure is Monday. This feels like the Mondayist of Mondays.
It’s not bad out, it’s pretty in that whispery, silvery-blue way, but I had to retype the start of that sentence because my fingers were on the wrong keys. So yeah, Monday.
And the start of July. Wow.
I think I need more caffeine in my life. My sleep and my nerves disagree, but maybe we can work something out.
There’s always tea, right?
It was a quiet weekend, yesterday I found an Australian show on Prime called “Spirited” and though only the first season is available, loved it. It’s weird and entertaining and it has Super Hans and if you don’t know who Super Hans is you’re clearly lacking in your British television department.
(He’s from “Peep Show.” It’s this very cringey-yet-funny comedy. I think it’s on Hulu.)
So I have to disengage from lazy mode and try to get focused. Have a great Monday.
And that’s June. Isn’t it bizarre? We’re here already. It’s tough to believe, June already gone.
It’s raining again, in a kind of a resigned, slightly dismal way, with streaks on the windows and a quiet gray hanging in the air. Not a joyful Friday, weather-wise at least.
On to the nitty-gritty, the #AccountaClub part where we talk how we’re doing with our ongoing goals.
Writing was…tepid. I’m not going to lie to you. I find that the louder the political drums beat, the harder it is for me to detach and focus on imaginary worlds. Probably because I feel like I should be doing something more concrete to try to stem this muddy tide.
Fitness, though, went really well, five days, five workouts, and I’ve just marked off the last one of June. It’s helping tremendously, I think, sticking to this fitness program. In case you’ve missed it, I like Daily Burn, a streaming channel that has live workouts five days a week, all new, plus programs and a whole library of past workouts. The variety is fantastic for me.
And that was my week. How was yours?
